Overview

PageCache powered by Varnish

Now: Free Community Version available under OSL license! Note that the free version is provided as is. For support please subscribe to the Enterprise version of the module.

Make your Magento store fly - with transparently integrated Varnish Cache! Blazing fast response times and lower server load during peak times making your Magento store 100x faster.

The PageCache module allows you to control your Varnish Cache instance from the Magento backend to trigger purge requests for single stores or content types. It also prevents caching of store pages containing customer information like shopping carts or logins.

No more worries about huge marketing campaigns or maniac crawlers: Varnish Cache will mitigate any peaks so your Magento store can care about the buyers and transactions!

The PageCache module has been architectural certified by Varnish Software to ensure highest quality and reliability for Magento stores.

 

Features:

- Allows full page caching of Magento store frontends with Varnish
- Prevent caching of pages containing custom information (these pages are cacheable in Enterprise version of the module, see below)
- Configure request paths (controller, action) to be excluded from caching
- Manually clean caches for single store views or content types or use automatic cleaning on object saving
- Maintain several Varnish instances from the Magento backend
- Set TTL for content pages per store view and controller actions
- Support for design exceptions
- Easily deactivate caching for certain Magento modules
- Enable debug mode to analyse any issues
- Ready to go configuration file (VCL) for Varnish Cache 3.0

 

Features for Enterprise Version:

- Varnish ESI support for dynamic page blocks (customizable)
- supported ESI blocks: mini cart, last viewed and compared products, top links, welcome message, compare list and wishlist
- Crawler for cache heating

Click here to check out the Enterprise Version in our Magento Demo Store.

 

Requirements:

- Magento CE > 1.5.1 or PE/EE > 1.9
- Installed Varnish instance(s) > 3.0

 

Known issues:

- "Recently Viewed Products" box is not supported in the community version of the module
- Logging and statistics will be fragmentary (Varnish won't pass cached requests to the webserver or Magento)

 

PageCache powered by Varnish is available as Community Version under the OSL. An Enterprise Version including additional features like a page crawler to keep your Varnish Cache hot and support is also available as subscription.

this could a perfect cache for magento, but - this could a perfect cache for magento, but - EXTERNAL_NO_CACHE cookie is still there when it`s not needed. 1000 euro for enterprise??? lol enterprise has its own fpc built-in. you just trying to speculate on the price, think once the license is 15k so you can just put a price tag of 1k?

Ok I guess You will need to comment out the compiler in the php file in order to work if you enabled the compiler. However, I did not notice any speed improvements. May 9, 2013
Perfeito! Minha loja está voando depois de instalar esta extensão! Muito obrigado :) Para quem teve "page not found" apenas precisa limpar o cache, sair e entrar novamente no painel administrativo. :D May 8, 2013
Blank Page Problem Solved I want to share a solution for this module. When you use compilation, all pages will show up as blank. However, if you turn on the following row in index.php, you will see the error in question: ini_set('display_errors', 1); ini_set('memory_limit', '256M'); I did some research on the following error: Fatal error: Class 'Phoenix_VarnishCache_Model_Processor' not found in... This occurs when you are using compilation. You can turn this of manually if you replace the following lines in index.php: include $compilerConfig; with /* include $compilerConfig; */ This means that you don't include the $compilerConfig any more and your e-commerce will work again. Hope this helps! April 24, 2013
Blank Page Problem After installing PageCache no pages are working anymore. All of them, including the admin backend pages are blank. The only thing I can do is to access the Download Manager again and un-install this module. I see that other members also has the very same problem. Can you please give us a solution of this problem, and I would be glad to give you a great rating when the module is fully working for me. /Fredrik April 23, 2013
Good extension but some times it return blank page (white empty page) Hi I have installed this extension, it works great. however, I found some times it return blank / empty / white page. I am just wondering if some one else had the same problem as me. It does not always happen, but it happens. The only way you can get around it is to purge the cache. Any one can share some idea on how to fix it??? March 10, 2013
occasionally i get blank (white) page Hi This extension really helps the performance. however, occationally, I get the blank (white) page. Does anyone have the same issue here?? When the white page displayed, the magento default favicon is displayed as well. Other than this, this extension works great. Thank you March 10, 2013
cache link header I installed this extension, but when i was enable, it cache all header, My Cart did not change when i add to cart. February 25, 2013
Magento Connect 2.0 i get "Connection Error try again later" when try to install. February 21, 2013
Is a TTL of 1 or 2 days ok/safe? We currently use an hour but we're finding that everytime we load the site the cache is empty and we have to wait for each page to load (re-cache). The performance hit is large. Why does Varnish not re-cache itself after it clears/cycles??? January 14, 2013

In your release notes, you mention an ESI release in Q1/12 or Q2/12. Looking at your reease notes you mention "Cache-Control:s-manage=x", is that the ESI integration?

Hi,

Do you have any plans to add cache warmer/primer functionality to the extension? It would be a great feature to be able to click a button in the System >> Cache Management section and be able to have a script crawl the site to prime the cache after a change.
